The Big Data Value Association advertised and granted a label for European Innovation Spaces to help drive forward Big Data adoption across all domains within European industry. At the BDVA Big Data Summit in Valencia, the first five i-Spaces were awarded with this new label.

European Innovation Spaces (BDVA i-Spaces) are one of the four pillars of the BDVA Strategic Research & Innovation Agenda. Innovation Spaces are cross-organizational and cross-sectorial environments
allowing challenges to be addressed in an interdisciplinary way and serving as European hubs for Big Data research and innovation activities.

Every year, existing hubs can obtain a label as a “BDVA i-Space”, after an evaluation process based  on a comprehensive criterion catalogue. The new label is granted in three grades: Bronze, Silver and Gold. These grades are aligned with the maturity and potential impact of the candidates in five main domains: Excellence of infrastructure, Quality of Services, Projects and sectors, Impact to Eco System and Business model.

A dedicated BDVA i-Space committee of domain experts from research and industry undertakes the evaluation process on behalf of BDVA. The final recommendations are proposed to the BDVA Board of Directors which approves/declines the final decision. On November 30th, five i-Spaces were rewarded during the Valencia BDVA summit.

BDVA i-Space Silver Labels have been granted to the Know-Center (Austria), Smart Data innovation Lab – SDIL (Germany), SICS ICE (Sweden), TeraLab (France). A Bronze Label was granted to EURECAT (Spain).
Representatives of each i-Space received a trophy-award at the BDVA i-Space Label Ceremony during the Summit Gala Dinner.
